COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Birra is a light, sessionable farmhouse ale. It is crisp with notes of black pepper and orange and goes perfectly with food.

prawlie (1499) - ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2015
Bottle. Frothy head, cloudy honey coloured beer, spritzy. Wheaty, earthy, farmhouse aroma, with some spiced fruitiness. Good malt base, a hint of Westmalle, creamy and a bit ’wit’. Really good.

Prufrockstar (1980) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2015
Bottle. I can get behind 12oz sessionable saisons, and even though $3.50+tax isn’t cheap, it ain’t exactly expensive either. Cloudy copper pour, small white head. Spicy and bready; Belgian esters mixed with musty gym socks; peppery lightly bitter finish. Light body, average carbonation. Overall: solid, and much better than most of the sweet American saisons that come in 12 oz bottles.

mateuszk (2085) - Poznań, POLAND - SEP 14, 2015
Draught. Malty with some spicyness, very weak on the nose. In taste dry, low sweet with very harsh bitterness and peppery finish.

BeerandBlues2 (12101) - Escondido, California, USA - SEP 13, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours cloudy pale yellow with a medium, rocky white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is moderate earthy wheat malt, lemongrass, pear esters and black pepper. Flavor is earthy wheat malt, lemon zest, medium citrus hops and bitterness with a dry finish. Light body and moderate carbonation.

koshack (1335) - Gdañsk, POLAND - SEP 13, 2015
W smaku kwaskowate, lekkie nuty winne, wyraźnie dzikie. Aromaty owocowe. Wyraźna goryczka w smaku. Lekko cierpkie i ściągające. Zostawia lekko słonawy posmak. Trochę wodniste.

Alengrin (4530) - BELGIUM - SEP 13, 2015
One of Prairie’s saisons brewed some place else. Clear, deep ’old gold’ colour with calm sparkling and irregular but dense, off-white, somewhat thin head but retaining well on the edges and in the form of small ’islands’ floating on the surface. Becomes a misty ochre with deposit. Pleasurable aroma of starfruit, melon, bubblegum, lemon zest, honey, young cheese, wild flowers, buttermilk, caramel, cider, bread crust, freshly cut grass, canned apricot, pineapple, sweet dessert wine. Nicely fruity onset, estery but still remaining quite ’clean’, sweetish with hints of sweet grapes, watermelon, unripe peach and green banana, soft carbo, very light salty touch for a brief moment, smooth, supple and lean body of caramelly malt sweetishness, spicy yeasty notes here and there and especially in the finish, where they match perfectly with a peppery, leafy hop bitterness, not harsh but gently and gradually drying and bittering the palate while juicy and fruity maltiness go down into the throat. Well rounded and balanced little saison, quenching at 4.5% ABV like the style was originally intended, but perhaps a bit too clean in comparison with most (traditional) Belgian saisons from the Hainaut province. Still, you can feel that this is carefully conceived and executed, and Prairie has already proven its feeling for farmhouse ales in previous products I tasted from them.

Maakun (3932) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2015
Bottle shared at home. Murky pale straw with big fizzy head that leaves a nice film. Light spicy yeast, some dough (I get some bread yeast besides the spicy yeast too), slight milk, nuts, straw, lemon. Light sweet and bitter. Under medium bodi9ed with quite some fizzy carbonation. Nice drinkable stuff, though it has some notes of milky dough with bread yeast that are closer to a witbier and don’t work too well for me here.
